Looking for some opinions! Haven't got long to go (will be induced next Thursday if she doesn't come naturally)!!!
We had chosen the name Rachel Helena for our baby but am now having last minute second thoughts! I still really like the name, but am not 100% sure.
The middle name will definitely be Helena or Lee (after my Grandmother, her name is Helena but she gets called Lee)
The other first names I like are:
What do you think?!

I like Rachel Helena the best, but I am biased.
I prefer Kirsten to Kristen.
Corinne, I never know whether to say CORR een or CORR in.

1 - Kristin
2 - Rachel
3 - Corinne
all of them go with both middles names.

I like Corinne best

I think Rachel Helena is lovely. I think if you've been leaning towards it all along then go for it. Corinne is also pretty though.

I think Rachel Helena is very pretty and a lovely choice, but I adore the name Corinne.
09/03/2007, 02:03 PM
I love the name Corinne but I would go with your first choice.
Its a lovely name.
09/03/2007, 02:45 PM
I like Rachel Helena the best!!
10/03/2007, 11:20 AM
Thanks everyone! I think we'll stick with Rachel Helena after all
10/03/2007, 12:56 PM
I like Corinne the best. I find Rachel very hard-sounding, but then I don't like most R names!
10/03/2007, 01:50 PM
Are you pronouncing it Rack el or Rache el. If it is Rache el, then I like that best, particularly spellt Rachael. If it is Rack el, I like Corrine best.
10/03/2007, 04:42 PM
I love Kristen
but Rachel was also on our list.
10/03/2007, 05:00 PM
I love Rachel
so would definitely stick with it if I were you.
FWIW, Corinne is just NMS, and my girlfriend called Kristin hates her name because she is always getting called Kirsten, Christine, or having to spell it when people mess it up!
Good luck, I hope little Rachel decides to head out on her own sometime soon

I am going be to very biased but I LOVE Rachel, this is DD2 name, but no matter what most people spell it Rachael. Good Luck for the impending arrival.

I perfer Kirsten Lee.. I don't think you here Kirsten to often.
10/03/2007, 07:21 PM
How about instead of Corrinne, You name her Carina.
I have a Carina and shes a gorgeous intellegent little thing and people always comment on her name.
